Why does my cat sometimes eat fresh cat litter out of the litter box?

Answer by Kate
oooh i haven't heard of this before. It shouldn't taste that nice i should think. you never know you may have one of those odd cats that have the rare eating disorder known as pica (see my page on this website about strange eating behaviors).

if your litter is a clay based litter then she might have cat Pneumonia if she dose do not tramatize her or it will get worse and she can die. to stop this try to feed her a lot of iron.
